Sparse underwater acoustic channel estimation in colored Gaussian noise [Renkli̇ Gauss gürültülü seyrek sualtı akusti̇k kanalların kestirimi]
Cooperative underwater acoustic communication systems come into prominence in recent years. Since underwater channels are sparse and additive noise entering the system is colored Gaussian noise. Therefore it is very difficult to estimate the underwater channels and theoretically makes it interesting. In this study the transmission from source to the target recipient is realized by means of a relay system. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)-based channel estimation problem is solved by using the matching pursuit (MP) algorithm and we obtained excellent error performance.
